Why cancer, heart attack and stroke insurance?
If you were diagnosed with cancer or suffered a heart attack or a stroke, the last thing you would want to worry about is your finances. Cancer, Heart Attack and Stroke coverage from Guarantee Trust Life Insurance Company can help you receive the financial peace of mind that allows you to focus on what really matters most — your recovery.

The cash benefits from your policy can be used to:
-Supplement Lost Income
-Pay for Experimental Treatments and Surgeries
-Take a recuperative trip or vacation
-Cover medical co-payments and deductibles
-Allow for extra time off of work
-Provide cash for car and mortgage payments

How CHS Protection Plus Works…
Choose the policy that’s right for you
Lump Sum Cancer Policy: You will receive a lump sum benefit amount paid directly to you upon the First Diagnosis of Cancer4 as defined in your policy. With GTL’s New Recurrence Benefit (see the following page for specifics) that’s included with your coverage, benefits restore after you have been in a period of remission for at least one (1) full year from a previously diagnosed cancer and for which benefits have been paid under this policy.
Lump Sum Heart Attack and Stroke Policy: You will receive a lump sum benefit amount paid directly to you upon suffering a heart attack5 or a stroke6, as defined in your policy. The Lump Sum Heart Attack and Stroke policy also includes GTL’s Recurrence Benefit and a Coronary Angioplasty or Coronary Artery Bypass Surgery Benefit** which will pay you ten percent of the selected Lump Sum Heart Attack and Stroke benefit amount should a Covered Person have Coronary Angioplasty or Coronary Artery Bypass Surgery.
** PLEASE NOTE: The Recurrence Benefit does not apply to the Coronary Angioplasty or Coronary Artery Bypass Surgery. Benefits are payable one time during the life of your policy and do not reduce the Lump Sum Heart Attack and Stroke benefit amount. Also, this benefit is not payable if the Coronary Angioplasty or Coronary Artery Bypass Surgery is performed as a direct result of a heart attack which immediately preceded the procedure or surgery.
